Bare Essentials Box
-cleaning supplies (antibacterial wipes, windex, swiffer wet/dry mops, etc…) [yes I know a cleaning crew will have already cleaned, but my OCD side says this is important]
-phone chargers, laptop chargers, laptops [and yes, I will actually unpack and not get distracted by House of Cards or at least that’s what I’m telling myself]
-toilet paper & paper towels [because duh]
-bottle of wine & wine glasses [to christen our new home]
-blanket for indoor picnic on the ground since we won’t have a table yet [this will likely consist of whole foods takeout & disposable utensils/plates, but it will be awesome nonetheless]
-cat food, kitty toys, & litterbox to keep the fur babies content
-candles, matches, & lightbulbs [scented candles make everything better & lightbulbs are simply an essential because no one likes to sit in the dark]
-a bag of potato chips [taking a cue from the Ninja Turtles clearly, but why not? Snacks!]
-scissors & tools to assemble things [because we have things to be assembled]
-first piece of artwork for the living room [to be pictured later]
-and of course a sensible unpacking sweatshirt to change into because the moving sweatshirt is now dirty
I think that’s it for the bare essentials of the first box. What are some of your essentials for moving?
Recipes & more will be coming again in the near future now that I have finally reached the end of grad school. Also, coming soon, updates on the new place 🙂 Oh and in other big news, aside from moving, I got engaged! Details on that to follow too.
Cheers to the weekend!
